Lingering On

This picture of the sunset was taken sometime back. It was about 6pm and I remember lazing on my couch enjoying this special moment. The horizon was of a fine golden tint, changing gradually to streaks of apple-green hues and from that a deep blue. At that moment, I felt like I witnessed something so magical and it was played for me to see only. I know you must be thinking, “Wah, she got alot of time to lie down and enjoy sunset hor?” I think so too.

Over the past two months of leading life as a fresh graduate, I could afford to be a professional bummer. Every aspect of my routine was relishing this carefree life. I could open my eyes at 8am and drift back into my action-packed dream without giving two hoots about the time.  I knew the forthcoming 9 to 5 grind. My reality will soon be boxed into a 6 by 3 foot cubicle and when Friday finally rolls around, I can barely muster up energy to thank god for it.

This break is all coming to an end. I’ll miss leading life this way. 3.more.days….

and I’ll call this place my new home! Good thing is, this job scope will give me the opportunity to be part of exciting marketing projects. Hang on tight, cos I’m in for a roller coaster ride…In front of me lies many learning opportunities and new relationships, with statements made in the interview process still ringing in my ears. It is true that the first three months of any job are an extension of the interview process which means…..I need to be on my game from Day 1 *pats the dust off my Jean Grey suit*

Wishing all my Muslim friends a joyous Selamat Hari Raya!!!! The streets along Geylang Serai were buzzing with so much activities, food variety and colors when I was there last evening. Speakers were blasted with calls of goods on discount and the charcoal smoke intensified the festive mood in this area. I also discovered that my favorite go-to stall for chilled teh-terik drinks – Mr Teh Tarik has a entire coffeeshop at this area. Cool beans…

The focus of this picture is of course, not my face but my mole. I think it is growing bigger day by the day and it calls for a serious concern. Ok alright, the focus is on my blusher actually. I like to spend a few minutes here raving about my favorite Watercolor Blusher (in Cherub shade) from Daniel Sandler. I’ve been using the 15ml bottle for close to 5-6 months already and there’s still quite a bit of product left. It comes in a fluid, watery consistency. Simply dab a few dots on your cheeks and blend. The resulting look is fresh and natural on my fishball-cheeks. Try it!! I’m not sure if any store in Singapore stocks this brand but you can get it online.

I got mine from FeelUnique.com. Free shipping worldwide! (on orders above $20)

And with that, I shall embrace the final moments of freedom and head for an afternoon swim. Have a long awesome weekend, everyone!

Green Goodness

I made the move to purchase this little pot of goodness today. The first reason is because I’ve been searching for an all-purpose light balm as an alternative to Vaseline, which is almost finishing. The second reason is because the friendly people behind www.feelunique.com is offering a yummy 15% this Easter Special! So, after reading many online raves about it working miracles, I thought I would treat myself. I hope it does not disappoint. To be honest, I was half-sold when I read the Moa Green Balm contains zero preservatives, parabens, alcohol and lanolin.

Here’s more about the product as stated on their store:

“Crammed with organic yarrow and lots of other lovely natural stuff, this handy little pot of Móa Balm has many weird and wonderful uses.

Móa The Green Balm’s miraculous healing powers soothe, nourish and renew dry, itchy skin conditions, bumps, bites and grazes and works wonders as an aftershave balm and facial cleanser. For absolutely donkey’s years yarrow’s herbal properties have been used to heal and repair; keep a little pot of Móa handy for any little crisis!”
